I love trying out new makeup, so when Mary Kay asked if I’d like to review some of their products, it was an easy decision! My makeup arrived in this pretty black box with a beautiful pink ribbon. Let’s open it up and start reviewing the products!
I received a combination of Mary Kay bestsellers and some of their newest products. I am a HUGE fan of lip gloss, so I was very excited to try out the different shades.
The first product I used was the TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set. This is a two-step skincare regimen that “fights fine lines, refine pores and achieve beautifully smooth skin.” I’ll take it!
I also tried the new Mary Kay® TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Eye Renewal Cream. It was very pampering. It has a cool metal applicator that feels great during application. My skin feels soft. I’m not sure my fine lines have gone away, but I like the glow that the product gives to my skin.
Here are the four lash products I received. I’ve never used a lash primer before, and I have to say that I am sold. The primer conditions and lengthens the look of your lashes and helps your mascara have a foundation to build upon.
Below you can see what my eye looks like before and after using Mary Kay® Lash Primer and Ultimate Mascara™ in Black. What a difference!
And yay for the Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus™ Lip Gloss in Café Au Lait, Rock ’n’ Red and Mango Tango. I was uber-impressed with how much color I received from the gloss. Typically glosses are much sheerer in color and it can be difficult to find one that is vibrant.
In these pictures, I am only wearing the lip gloss, with no other product on my face. You can see how much color the gloss adds!
And I have saved the best for last for you. The mineral makeup! I don’t typically wear a lot of eyeshadow, and I was honestly nervous about trying any eye shadow color other than brown. However, I really loved the Mineral Eye Colors in Golden Vanilla, Truffle, and Lavender Fog. You can see some of the colors in the cute Mary Kay Compact Mini pictured below. This is an ingenious refillable magnetic compact that allows you to easily customize your look by filling the compact with three mineral eye colors and a Mary Kay Cheek Color. There is even a hidden tray underneath the magnetic well to store your applicators!
And here is my complete Mary Kay face.
